Table - International Partner Funding, by Account (in millions)
The main objective of this annual contribution under an ongoing five-year Public International Organization (PIO) grant (2008-2012) is to increase significantly UNAIDS’ effort to scale up the global response to HIV/AIDS with particular emphasis at the country level. This global response seeks to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS, provide care and support, reduce individual and community vulnerability to HIV/AIDS and mitigate the impact of the epidemic. To achieve these goals, UNAIDS implements activities that:
UNAIDS priorities for action as expressed in its 2009-2011 Outcome Framework will contribute to achieving critical PEPFAR goals identified in the recently published PEPFAR five-year strategy including: 1) promotion of transition from an emergency response to sustainable country programs, 2) using UNAIDS vast network of country teams to strengthen partner government capacity to lead the response to this epidemic and other health demands, recognizing the importance of making progress in both concentrated and generalized epidemics, and 3) the push to integrate and coordinate HIV/AIDS programs with broader global health and development programs to maximize impact on health systems.
UNAIDS programs are increasingly focused on placing the HIV/AIDS response in the context of broader health and development challenges. Especially with a renewed focus on the MDGs and how work on MDG 6 (infectious diseases) can impact the other health-related MDGs, strong partnership with UNAIDS is essential. HIV/AIDS programs expand health systems and workforce, contributing to the achievement of the health-related MDGs by addressing the demands and impact of HIV/AIDS on health workers and providing a platform for the expansion of overall health systems.
